Council recently received a formal proposal from Community Transport Service Tasmania (CTST) to transition the Sorell Community Bus to CTST’s expanded services within the region.
Under CTST the bus will continue to be used to provide a general passenger service, but with a greater focus on addressing transport disadvantage in the community. The transition of the community bus to CTST will provide improved transport options for the community, with a significant increase to the service currently provided by Council.
CTST will continue to operate the Primrose Sands to Sorell route on Tuesdays and Thursdays without change. People wishing to utilise the service need to book their seat and can do so by phoning CTST on 1300 651 948.
CTST took ownership of the bus on 27 April 2018 and will signwrite the bus with their own branding in the coming weeks.
